Baby it is cold outside.  A little warmer today than it was yesterday.  It was in the -10's yesterday and today it is 20.  Strange weather.  Snow is in our future..near future.  So again, it is a good day for sewing.

I finished my little bird quilt.

It looks a little wonky here...blame it on my head cold.  I used the same fabric as the inner border for the binding.  I had to buy some buttons for the berries on the branch.  It now looks finished and I love it.

The Buttermilk Basin BOM for February came out on the 15th.  Again mine is made using cotton fabrics.

This is going to be a sweet quilt when finished.  I can't wait to see what Stacy has planned for us next month.

I finished the applique on the bottom of Cheri Payne's "Forget Me Not" quilt.

I took a closeup of the bottom applique.  I still need to sew lines down the center of the windows.  The top border is going to have 3 blackbirds.  I'm putting that off till I finish a new project.

The New Project is for our new Granddaughter Ella that is due in May.  I finished the pieced blocks and am now working on the appliqued center block. I can't show you any pictures yet.  But I will show them after they receive the quilt.

Keep warm and keep busy.  I know I will.

Hugs, Cathy

All good stuff in my book. And I like your header picture too. The basket quilt in the header is a good one.

I like that you're making the Buttermilk Basin blocks with cottons - pretty fabrics you chose! The Cheri quilt is so cute with appliqué on one border only.

Three great projects!
I think your hubby's choice of fabric framed the little bird beautifully.
Nice job on the BB block, and I love Cheri's little 9 patch design!

I just love that little birdie!! I've not done a wool project in cottons yet, but yours turned out so cute I just may have to try it - I admire so many of them but don't want to work with wool. I love that Forget Me Not quilt, so so cute!

Are you feeling better yet? Stay warm!!
